Feeling burned out? You’re not alone. Let us help you navigate your way back to balance.

Burnout is more than just a buzzword—it’s a real and potentially debilitating condition. Characterized as a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion, burnout arises from prolonged and excessive stress, often stemming from work or other demanding responsibilities. It’s important to understand that burnout is not a mere momentary sensation of fatigue or stress; it’s a deeper, persistent condition with significant repercussions on one’s mental and physical health.

Prevalence of Burnout

Burnout is most commonly linked to workplace-related stress. However, it isn’t isolated to any one profession. Research spanning various sectors and jobs has consistently shown that burnout effects a considerable portion of the workforce. Estimates suggest that in the general populace, burnout prevalence ranges between 20% and 40%, or even higher in certain groups. This underscores the pressing need for awareness, intervention, and support.

Symptoms of Burnout

  • Exhaustion: An overwhelming sense of fatigue that doesn’t improve with rest.
  • Decreased Motivation: Where once there was enthusiasm, now there’s an aversion.
  • Detachment: A feeling of disconnection from one’s responsibilities and commitments.
  • Performance Decline: Decreased efficacy in professional or personal tasks.
